Gendarmes and the State in Nineteenth-Century Europe

by

Gendarmes and the State in Nineteenth-Century Europe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides the first serious look at the origins and development of the role of soldier-policemen: the gendarmeries of nineteenth-century Europe. Looking at how the model was first developed in France and then exported across Europe, Emsley argues that gendarmes played a significant role in establishing the state, particularly in rural areas.

Synopsis:

The history of policing has been the subject of much interest and research. This text provides an academic exploration of the origins and development of the role of soldier-policemen - the gendarmeries of 19th-century Europe - examining how and why the model came to be exported from France.
